The Great Courses
"Books That Have Made History:
Books That Can Change Your Life"
2:00-3:30 pm
Litchfield Community Center
What makes a written work eternal--its message still so fundamental
 to the way we live that it continues to speak to us, hundreds or thousands
 of years distant from the lifetime of its author? Why do we still respond
to an ancient Greek playwright's tale of the Titan so committed to
humanity's survival that he is willing to endure eternal torture in his
defiance of the gods? To the cold advice of a 16th-century Florentine
 exiled from the corridors of power? To the words of a World War I
German veteran writing of the horrors of endless trench warfare?

Total of 36 lectures.
Group will cover 1-2 a meeting with discussion to follow.
